Everybody Knows (2018) W & D : Asghar Farhadi S: Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem

I can't believe this movie doesn't have a thread. I was absolutely blown away by it. Best movie of 2018 for me. Just an absolutely beautiful work of art. I went in knowing nothing about it whatsoever. All I knew was that it had Bardem and Cruz in it, and was directed by Asghar Farhadi, who I've never actually seen a film by (something I intend to rectify immediately), but was aware of who he was and the acclaim his films have received. I'm gonna have to watch it again before I give it the 5/5 that I really want to right now fresh out of seeing it.

I would recommend not even watching the trailer, so I won't even post it. Going in blind made it an even more amazing experience.

This is getting a wider release this weekend. Currently 74% on RT: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/everybody_knows/

I'm going to try and see it next week if I can.

I picked this up from the library on a whim and glad I did. Even at 2 hours it really flew by. My only complaint was I wanted to hear that conversation at the end! I also didn't realize it was the same director as The Salesman, which one an Academy Award a few years ago. Although I liked this movie more.

Another library loaner here, likewise blind except for having seen Farhadi’s previous work, and another strong (albeit late) recommendation. I’ve somewhat unintentionally become a follower of Argentina’s Ricardo Darín in recent years as well (most recently at the TIFF premiere of his infectiously amusing heist movie Heroic Losers), so it was nice to see him in this.

On a lark, I decided to rewatch the last portion of the film with the Descriptive Video Service track turned on just to see how it measured up, and was nicely surprised when the reader — who does an excellent job, by the way — revealed herself to be . . . Adrienne Barbeau! Apparently that’s a thing she does these days.
